As temperatures rise, so does the anticipation for the near completion of the first phase of The Emory North Liberty. The first building is expected to open at the beginning of July.




The paving on site is about 90% complete, and all the underground utilities have been installed. Construction on the swimming pool is about to begin.


The clubhouse's framing is done, and the lower windows and roof are now in place. The Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) trades are in the final stages of their rough-ins for the building, with drywall installation anticipated to start soon. Additionally, the siding and masonry work for the building is scheduled to begin in the next few weeks.


The exterior masonry work for the building is nearing completion, and siding installation commenced in mid-February. The fourth floor has been drywalled, taped, finished, and ready for the painting phase.

The drywalling process is finished on the third floor, and taping and finishing work are underway. The second floor is now set for drywall installation, while the first floor has completed the MEP rough-ins and is awaiting inspection.


The building's exterior structure and window installation have been completed. Roof installation has started, and the MEP trades are just beginning their rough-ins for this structure.


Over 95% of the framing is complete, with Tyvek and window installation beginning soon.


The maintenance building has been framed. Phase I garages have been framed, with roofs installed in two out of the four garages. Siding and masonry work on the building is scheduled to begin this month.



Since The Emory will soon join the North Liberty community, let's discover why Haverkamp Group is excited to expand into the fast-growing rental market.



North Liberty, Iowa, nestled in the heart of Johnson County, exudes small-town charm while embracing the vibrancy of a growing community. With its convenient location just minutes from Iowa City and Coralville Lake, North Liberty perfectly balances rural tranquility and urban convenience. The community's population ballooned from 13,400 in April 2010 to 20,500 in April 2020—a 53% increase, beating out rapidly growing Des Moines suburbs Waukee & Ankeny.



Solomon's Landing is a new 80-acre development in North Liberty situated north of W Penn St.  – which connects North Liberty to Interstate 380.

In addition to The Emory, Solomon's Landing includes 110 new single-family homes, The Palestra sports complex, an entertainment center that will house Bowldogs bowling alley & bar, Pizza Ranch restaurant, and Fun Zone arcade.

Starbucks Coffee and Jersey Mike's sandwich shop round out the new development.



The 36,000-square-foot building will focus on being a destination for indoor sports and community events and is expected to bring in $30 million of new revenue for North Liberty over the next seven years. With weekends full of club sports tournaments, the rest of the week will be free for the community to host events and provide practice space for local club and school teams.

Possible activities in The Palestra include basketball, indoor soccer, football, volleyball, pickleball, wrestling, birthday parties, indoor inflatables, and more.






To the east of The Palestra will be home to BowlDogs, Pizza Ranch, and the FunZone arcade in a 37,000-square-foot entertainment center.


BowlDogs boasts 16 luxury bowling lanes and four lanes inside a private area that can be used for parties and work functions.

Additionally, the space will house a bar and restaurant, ax throwing, billiards, shuffleboard, and more. With the option to simulcast any event at The Palestra, the entire strip at Solomon's Landing is an excellent destination for families.

Pizza Ranch, a popular midwestern buffet chain, is moving its existing North Liberty location to a 7,000-square-foot space adjacent to BowlDogs. The new location will include four large private party rooms and Pizza Ranch's FunZone, a 5,600-square-foot arcade.
